Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

problem #3

DeVille 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 173,000 miles


: the consumer stated while having the fuel injector repaired, the independent repair shop personnel said the fuel rail would need to be removed in order to repair the fuel injector. Due to the fuel rail being made of plastic, there was a chance the fuel rail would break and have to be replaced. The dealership informed the serviceman the fuel rail was now being made of metal because the plastic was too weak.
